Gary, that certainly isn't normal. Go into your menu to "Aspect/color/WB. Then:

Select "Noise Reduction" to Auto. If you use long exposure times this will automatically

do a "black frame" noise reduction to eliminate noise. This is all it does and it has no effect on your normal photography...ONLY that which requires long exposures. Put it on "Auto" and forget about it.

Then navigate down to "Noise Filter". This is the important one. Looks to me like yours must be set to "Off". For most normal work I'd set it at "Standard". If you are going to shoot over ISO 800, I'd set it at "High". I think this will likely solve your problems.

This setting doesn't matter when he's shooting RAW.  And when he's shooting JPEG, setting the camera to High really eats into the detail.  I think the best way to  confront the noise issue with E-Series cameras is to shoot with fast lenses, ie the 35-100 f/2, 50mm f/2, etc.  It's expensive, but its better than shooting at high ISO.
